that occurred at sandy hook elementary school, the cities, states and now president of looking for ways to stem violence what. what took place in connecticut was not the only reason i began working on this legislation. oftentimes it takes a national tragedy to create significant among them and political pressure around the issue of gun violence. but, what is getting missed in these debates is that the reality is that these tragedies associated with gun violence take place every single day in our neighborhoods all across the country. i know all too well what this tragedy looks like. i experienced it every time every time i get a phone call in the middle of the night for the police department alerting me of another violent crime are shooting. families as they grieve. i experience it every time i go to san francisco general hospital to console the victims of gun violence, last year a victim as young as five years old. we continue to address the causes and impact of this senseless gun violence. increasingly involves young adults under the age of 25; often related to disputes over turf and
want to state we're not here trying to undermine funding for sandy, needed for sandy. some of the things the house did i think are legitimate in terms of saying let's set aside unrelated matters. it doesn't mean we cast them into the dust bin never to be seen again. it simply means let's let those that are not emergency situations be more carefully examined in terms of whether we need that. and if someone does come to the floor, as senator lee is going to do, is my understanding, and offers a potential offset, let's at least look at that possibility. the debt clock is ticking and ticking ever faster. and it is destroying the hopes and dreams of future generations. and i think we have a moral responsibility to at least be as conscious and effective with dealing with the taxpayers' dollars in terms of how they're spent, whether it's an emergency supplemental related to a disaster or whether it's just a normal appropriation that comes along every year through our appropriations process. we haven't exercised that kind of discipline, and our country is going to pay a very seriou

with 64 votes. we passed the hurricane sandy emergency relief bill also in bipartisan fashion, with 62 votes. we had open debate, we had discussions, we had amendments, and we passed legislation. particularly we passed by a powerful bipartisan vote of 89-8, a bill that avoided tax increases for 99% of americans and extended emergency unemployment benefits for another year and protected us from the fiscal cliff. when it comes to legislating, the senate actually has a pretty strong bipartisan record. how did those senate bills do on the house side? well, the house couldn't pass its own highway bill. congress has been doing highway bills since the eisenhower years. this isn't rocket science. the house couldn't do one. the best the house of representatives could do was to pass a short-term extension that allowed some of their members to get to conference on the senate bill. but they took no bill into conference because they couldn't pass one. even then they delayed the conference negotiations and they cost the united states of america an entire summer construction season for highway constr

year which also provided much-needed relief funds for hurricane sandy victims. that was a bipartisan bill. it was supported by senate republicans and democrats alike. but the republicans in the house regrettably gutted the bill and sent back legislation that explicitly cut out wildfire relief. in that context, let me make one point absolutely clear. this is an emergency. some people have questioned the need for funding and have asked why we wouldn't limit dollars to just hurricane sandy saer kwras like the bill -- hurricane sandy areas. the short answer is it is the fiscally smart thing to do, the right thing to do, and the fair thing to do. this bill is an emergency appropriations bill for all national disasters, not just hurricane sandy. it is our best hope of seeing wildfire relief. i emphatically note that the colorado emergencies occurred before hurricane sandy and the west should not have to continue to wait. very few emergency supplemental bills pass congress. this bill is passing now, and it should include aid for colorado and other states across our country. we as americans,

not prompt action -- at least presidential action like sandy hook has. will sandy hook also prompt action in congress? >> i think so. yes, it will. but first i have to say again, what a powerful statement. the poem that he wrote for this occasion, and i thought he and president obama got together ahead of time and talked about this togetherness, and all of us americans are in this together. and here is a young man, cuban american, openly gay man, that really said something too, plus the power of his words. but to sandy hook this was the slaughter of the innocents. and i think that's what really shocked us and shocked the president. these were little angels. the purest of the pure, and as the president said and i was at the white house when he announced his proposals. this is our number 1 responsibility as a people is to protect our children, and this is how we will be judged is what he said. and i believe this congress will act, maybe not everything we want them to do but we'll see some action not just talk on gun violence this year. >> jennifer: christine my guess is

's happening. do you remember right after the tragedies that took place in sandy hook elementary school? the president and others were asked questions about how about having police officers on these elementary school campuses? and the answer was, we don't want guns in school. well, the answer though is really, the exact opposite of that. what the n.r.a. and others said is the answer, security personnel in elementary schools and other events and you had that by the way, sporting events, you have armed security, you have it on college campuses. it's focusing on the wrong issue. this fbi said that the assault weapon ban of 1994 did nothing to lower crime and does anybody that's watching this broadcast now think that a signed poster that said do not carry your weapon in this area would prevent what happened in sandy hook. and what about the hipaa laws when a professional finds out, what happens. >> and one of the weapons used at sandy hook, bush master, mr-14. before the patent on the m-16 was expired. it was-- >> domestic. but it can fire 45 shots in a minute by squeezing the trigger, this
